My work

I have worked with a range of clients directly and through design and usability agencies in industry sectors including broadcasting, mobile telephony, finance and public sector. I also have experience of working in permanent employment as Senior User Researcher with HSBC and Usability and Accessibility Consultant with AbilityNet.

“I first met Judith when she organised and facilitated a persona workshop at AbilityNet, as part of a large accessibility research project for the BBC. Her research methods, in-depth knowledge of accessibility and her experience with users was incredibly impressive – so much so that I went on to work with Judith on a number of other accessibility testing and research projects. Judith has an incredible capacity for research and is very methodical in her approach to co-ordinating and running user-research. She is highly intuitive to the needs of disabled users and shows this in the practical recommendations she makes. I learnt so much from Judith and really appreciate everything she taught me – I continue to apply those lessons on a daily basis!”

Lucy Dodd, BBC

“Judith’s attention to detail and planning skills are first class. She worked on large scale accessibility/usability projects which required careful planning.

Judith shares her extensive knowledge freely and has exceptional skills working with diverse and mainstream test participants. Judith Garman is inspiring and fun to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.”

Kath Moonan, AbilityNet

“Judith taught me not just UCD tactical skills but strategy as well. I learned different and more effective ways to explain myself, communicate with others and make my Intranet offerings more useful.

Not all colleagues change the way you work and better yet with such a pleasant and open manner. I still wish I sat next to Judith as I would be smarter today.”
